Showtime Boxing peaks at just 343K for main event

April 30, 2019

Showtime Boxing on Saturday night drew 312,000 viewers for its main event featuring Robert Easter, Jr and Rances Barthelemy.  The fighters fought to a split decision draw as part of the PBC event.

The event drew 92,000 viewers in the A18-49 demo.

The triple fight on Showtime did not produce strong viewership as it was sandwiched between UFC, Bellator and DAZN boxing.  The main event peaked at 343,000 viewers.

The co-feature of the night, Viktor Postol’s victory over Mohamed Mimoune drew 217,000 viewers.

Payout Perspective:

Not a very good viewership night for PBC on Showtime as the aforementioned other combat sports likely overshadowed this event.  With the DAZN event Friday being the biggest event in boxing this weekend, Saturday’s Showtime event may have been an afterthought.
